Welcome to New Mexico Dogs Deserve Better!
We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to helping chained/penned dogs throughout the state of New Mexico and beyond. We also extended our New Mexico outreach to include the many other desperate situations dogs find themselves in through no fault of their own. Our focus is on education, community outreach, rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and networking… all for the LOVE of DOG! Read more about us.
See all our adoptable dogs at Petfinder.
Looking for Forever…
Shep Needs a Foster Home!
A Picture to Make You Smile!
We held an informal photo shoot for some of our kiddos in boarding. Thank you to NMDDB foster mom, volunteer & SUPER talented photographer, Helga!!! Pictured here are Angela Stell and Sheriff, one of our wonderful dogs available for adoption.
Our pitties went in for a fancy photo-shoot and came out looking like rockstars! The good news is, they are all available for adoption!!
Many, many thanks to Photographer Sean Weaver who selflessly donated his time and talents to this pittie-project!
NMDDB does not have a shelter facility and relies 100% on foster homes. We are currently very short on foster families, which means that some of our dogs are in boarding — less than ideal for them and costing us a lot of money… Please consider becoming a foster parent and a part of our rescue family TODAY!
